When I’m being asked, if I am for a burka ban or not, it’s hard to give a simple “yes or no” answer. Unless they ask in German – Germans have a wonderful word for it: ”jein”, meaning simultaneously “ja” and “nein”.
I used to run a couple of Facebook fanpages. One of them was shut down three times, apparently for being homophobic. It was quite the opposite, actually. The name could be confusing, because it was a word play on the Polish word for “faggot” and a name of a Polish gossip portal. But the content was specifically anti-homophobic! It was a rainbow meme aggregator, basically a gay version of 9gag.
But the thing is, I can only assume why did people report my fanpage and why did moderators remove it. Did someone just assume it’s homophobic without actually checking it out? Or quite the opposite: did someone consider homosexuality an abomination and just reported everything that’s even remotely gay? I’ll never know. The only thing Facebook bothered to tell me is that “I’ve abused the Community Standards”. I’ve read them thoroughly and there was no abuse of them from my side.
Dawno temu pisałem tego bloga anonimowo i pod innym adresem. Nie byłem wtedy wyoutowany (ani jako gej, ani jako ateista), natomiast byłem całkowicie zależny od rodziców. Czyjś zbyt długi język mógł mi naprawdę nieprzyjemnie namieszać w życiu.
